Seasons Greetings on this episode of the Get Paid For Your Creativity podcast I’m over the moon thrilled to welcome back Transformational Voice and Business Coach Ariana Newcomer! In case you’re new to the show Ariana was a guest on Episode 20 as well as featured contributor on the Monetize Your Gifts Masterclass I hosted last year.
The last time Ariana chatted with us we talked about how to sell your art without feeling like a sell out! It was a very powerful discussion and one you should definitely check out after this episode. I’ve provided a link below in the additional resources section below.
Her message is very simple ~ “Our voice is our greatest tool of engagement” and now more than ever as our reliance on social media increases it’s important not to lose sight of the power direct communication with our ideal clients or just the people we do business with.
In our technologically advanced world we often forget that it’s the sound of our voice that creates connection with another human being in a real tangible way. This is very important rather you plan to shoot videos for Youtube, do your own podcast, delivering in person presentations, teach a class, talk with art buyers, even in our dealings with vendors over the telephone.
Your voice is it!
I love chatting with Ariana because she’s extremely passionate about her work with healers, entrepreneurs, change agents and artists. What you may not know about her is she’s a trained professional modern dancer and former opera singer so she knows a little something about the creative process and what it takes to be successful.
In this interview she shares in depth her personal journey and how she came to become a Transformational Voice Coach it’s quite inspiring. During our time together Ariana revealed a very powerful parallel between our vocal expression and visual expression it was actually a revelation that surprised both of us and you won’t want to miss our a-ha moment!
Regardless if you’re a visual or performance artist or any type of entrepreneur you’ll definitely want to hear she has to say on the subject of creative expression and how we can better use our voices to improve the quality of our lives.
Ariana’s just published a brand new ebook titled Voice Your Value and it’s a phenomenal resource, we’ll be talking about the book and how to get your hands on a copy on the show.
So settled in and be prepared to have your mind expanded and welcome my guest for the final episode of the Get Paid For Your Creativity Podcast for 2014, Transformational Voice and Business Coach, Ariana Newcomer!
